Tomato Soup and Grilled Cheese Sticks

IMG_9561

What is more comforting that creamy tomato soup and warm grilled cheese?  A day off from school and work is closed down, (I anticipated this) what better snowy day stuck indoors food could you ask for?

The Weather men/woman had been predicting a cold wintry blast of weather for our region this particular week.  Of course our daughter was praying school would be canceled (Typical) and I of course knew it was going to be a day at home for us.  In anticipation I wanted to have a comfort food for us to have  on this particular day.  After sleeping and stoking the fire, a wonderful brunch, all that was left was a nice warm comfort meal to carry us into the evening.

Why not transform the combination up a bit, just because we can.  I want all the lip smacking taste that I remember as a child and as a mother giving to my children on cold rainy days.

Here we have grilled cheese sticks, perfect for dipping into the soup.

Throw together your favorite soup; I of course went for a thick creamy tomato soup.

We will make the cheese sticks with a cheese that melts fairly quickly, (I am not a big fan of processed cheese, but will use it if need be) I used Kraft singles.  I know, I know, this is not even sold as a cheese, it is just called “Singles” with that being said, it is the cheese of yesteryear, what we all used to have as a family, what typically is used for grilled cheese (basic) sandwiches. I am not going gourmet today, I am going easy comfort food. Sometimes that is what is needed!

Flatten out your bread, we used wheat.

Cut the ends off, place a slice of cheese onto the bread and tightly roll.   Make three per person (or more if needed) Cook in butter turning until crispy on the outside.
